RKM President to Participate in Town Hall Meeting Thursday, January 17

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - January 15, 2008) - NewMarket Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: NMKT) announced today that their Latin American regional subsidiary, RKM IT Solutions (RKM) Microsoft sales increased 345% in their region over the same period in the prior year due in part to the company's recent upgrade to Microsoft Large Account Reseller and Enterprise Software Advisor (LAR/ESA) partner status from Gold Partner. The period tracked was from July 2007 to December 2007 compared to July 2006 to December 2006. Additionally, RKM exceeded their Microsoft sales quota by 159% from July to September 2007, and by 287% from October to December 2007. RKM's existing customer base provided the majority of the increase in sales. RKM now plans to further increase sales by expanding the company's customer base.

As part of this overall increase in Microsoft partner program sales, RKM recently announced the sale of a corporate Microsoft License for Servers and Workstations to Banplus EAP of Venezuela. Banplus (www.banplus.com), an existing customer of RKM's, is a commercial bank that targets servicing small to medium companies. PC World of Venezuela has highlighted Banplus Technology supported by RKM: http://www.pcworld.com.ve/n111/articulos/clubcios.html.

RKM's Microsoft Partner Upgrade

Earlier this year, RKM's Microsoft partner status was upgraded to a LAR/ESA from Gold Partner. LAR/ESA Partners significantly expand Microsoft's reach both geographically and to the rapidly growing category of Mid-Market and corporate customers. This recent partnership allows RKM to significantly extend its existing Microsoft Gold partnership to offer high volume licensing, specifically "Enterprise Agreement" (EA) and "Select" for companies with more than 250 PCs and support services to large enterprise and institutional customers. Prior to their selection to the LAR/ESA Partner program, RKM has been a Microsoft Gold Partner since 2001, winning the 2003 Microsoft Infrastructure Solution of the Year award in Venezuela.
